"A great recipe to have when the garden starts to produce in abundance! We found that if we had enough juicy tomatoes, we didn't need the V8 juice. easy to substitute vegetables (or leave out ones your family isn't fond of.)"

"I have the Farm Fresh Favorites cookbook and recently made this soup. It is delicious but for me it needed some meat.. so the 2nd day I added some Chaurice sausage from our local sausage kitchen and it was perfect. Parm cheese sprinkled on top was good, too. I note that here on line there is no listing for fiber yet in the cookbook it says 0 fiber, which can't be correct. I will definitely make this again. You could add rice or pasta, too"
